It's tough to forecast prices in the future as the previous answers have mentioned. That being said we can look back at recent months to get an idea of where the market is headed. Rig ... more

A close friend of our family's (non-resident alien in the US) is offering to transfer the deed of his rental in WA state to me as a quick claim deed.
For your own safety and protection I recommend you hire a Real Estate Attorney as well as an accountant for the tax issues. Realtors are not experts in either fields.
